Instant Classic: Laclasica by Stua
They say the proof is in the pudding.
While I can’t say whether the “Stay” restaurant in Mallorca serves that particular confection, I can affirm that the proprietors have chosen to adorn the airy environs with Jesús Gasca’s Laclasica chair, a good many of them, in fact.
The double row decorating the ocean-side restaurant is a testament to the chairs’ appeal, the natural ash and earthy upholstery matching the organic, breezy allure of “this space that breathes the sea that surrounds it.”
Nor is Laclasica confined to hospitality locales. Modeled after the natural curves of the human form, Laclasica evokes sensuality and warmth, familiarity and comfort, which makes it ideal for residential settings as well.
The chair also offers a timeless appeal. The design uses 3D plywood technology for a seamless junction between the back and legs, a sculptural detail that makes it seem like Laclasica “has always been here.”
Laclasica is a potent example of using technology without sacrificing beauty or sensuality or the welcoming feel of an heirloom piece. As Gasca says, “I use technology to make my designs more human.”
Available with or without arms, La Clasica is stackable. Options include six stain colors and an extensive range of Kvadrat textile upholstery.
